My question involves traffic court in the State of: New York.
The situation by the way was similar to the person who had the Caltrain Fare Evasion Citation.
So I was going to school early in the morning, went to my friend's home, back to school, and I forgot I exceeded the limit in the amount of rides a day with my Metrocard. So I decided to go through the gate without paying. But I got caught anyways and the Police asked me questions in order to give me the ticket.
He asked me for my ID Card and I gave him my student ID. He wrote down my Name, date of birth and ID number. Them he asked me for my address, and I gave him the one next door. I gave him my friend's home phone number instead of mine, and he wrote down the date of birth on my ID Card, which is different from what my school records say, and of course, I gave him my mothers name since I'm under 18.
The question is, if the Officer only has my Name, mothers name and ID number correctly, can they still do anything about this IF I DONT PAY THE FINE ? In my opinion, there's barely any way to identify me, and even if they do manage to look up my records through my ID number (which I doubt they can do that), they'll have a hard time trying to prove that Its me.
Seriously guys, I 'm not a bad person, and I didn't mean to do something like this, but I'm not a person who can just ask my parents to pull $100 for a Citation out of their pocket. My parents are struggling enough as it is now.
Is there hope, or am I still done for it?
